At Bus Stops Around San Francisco, Radiant Photos of the City’s LGBTQ Communities
SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco’s Financial District isn’t the busiest part of town on the weekend. That’s doubly true in late 2020 as the Bay Area teeters on the brink of a second coronavirus lockdown. Walking along Market Street from Embarcadero to Civic Center, most of the people I encountered along one of the city’s primary thoroughfares are unhoused. I tried not to disturb anyone who was sitting or sleeping along the route while completing my appointed task: looking at bus shelter posters. As I walked, I thought about how we define family and community, and how we look after one another in crisis.
